    Is meat addictive?

    My husband sometimes gets very bad tempered when he doesn't get his daily fix of breakfast bacon. Is there any evidence that meat could be addictive?

    Haha. I don't know if anyone has looked into it scientifically, but I'd say (with great personal conviction and no intention of seeking help) that bacon is pretty addictive.

    Still, with no disrespect to the pork itself, I'm pretty sure a lot of that has to do with the salt and curing process.

    It's not only meat; it's salty, crispy, crunchy....it's the potato chip of meats!

    I think it is...especially if you have eaten it since your kid days....its hard to give up, its tasty and lots of protein. I eat it regularly and I have sometimes given up for a month or so..it was hard. There are a lot of tasty vegetarian dishes, yet I have found veg pasta or pizza not as yummy as the non veg varieties smile

    Its not addictve, its a food. You cant really be addicted to food but you can be addicted to overeating. It's not an addictive substance but it can get abused!

    It's probably like needing yogurt for breakfast. It becomes a habit, and I get angry when we forget to replenish our stock. So no, bacon is not addictive, it's a habit. We do get mad over food. Lol. We need to stop the silly anger and chill
